"IT-enabled marketing"--how to identify the best business opportunities and greatest risks.

Analytics, data mining, and Big Data are hot topics now.  But deploying these tools depend on the questions executives ask, and how they intend to uncover business development risks and opportunities.  How companies frame the problems they're seeking to solve has a great bearing on the value of what they discover.  As we've learned through some notable debacles, 'because we can generate the information' doesn't always yield valuable insights.

“Data Bites”

Waterview Conference Center followed by a networking event at the Le Meridien hotel in Rosslyn, VA.

McIntire NOVA Class launches “Data Bites” Forum with Senior Federal IT Leaders

With only a few months of classroom lectures at the new Waterview Conference Center in Rosslyn, McIntire, MSMIT students are launching a new lecture series featuring Senior Federal IT leaders while also spotlighting their impressive new classroom facility. “It’s difficult to not appreciate the unparalleled view of all of DC and not wonder what challenges face the senior IT leader in one of the world’s most powerful cities” said Will Gorham, Class of 2013 student and one of two founders of the Data Bites speaker forum concept. Data Bites is a simple, half hour discussion forum featuring senior federal leaders in IT followed by a networking event.  “Peter Hu, (Data Bites co-founder) and I felt federal and private sector students could greatly benefit from a federal IT perspective. Not only would this brief introduction provide some insight into federal IT challenges, but it would also provide McIntire student visibility into federal business and employment opportunities.” Topics of discussion are set by the speaker and are non- attribution.

The inaugural Data Bites forum is honored to have as its first speaker April Battle, Director of Agency Outreach and Agency Implementation Team for The Department of the Treasury.  Ms. Battle reports to the Deputy Commissioner for Finance and Administration and is responsible for providing strategic vision and overarching support to the agency marketing/messaging, outreach/engagement, and enterprise-wide product/service implementation. Prior to this position, April served as Director of Agency Relationship Management for Federal Finance.  April holds multiple certifications in areas such as governance of enterprise information technology, risk and information system control, change leadership, managing organizational and individual transition, and organizational development.  April earned a Master of Administrative Science and Information Technology degree from The Johns Hopkins University and BBA in Management of Information Systems from Loyola University of Maryland.
